CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Conference of the Library Information Community of Quebec (CLIC) invites you to EXPRESS YOURSELF for our 7th annual conference at thePalais des congrès de Montréal from 18-20 November 2015.
The program committee suggests three themes for you to consider:
An unavoidable subject at the beginning of this year, what is our professional role facing this 21st century challenge? How and why do we need to assume this responsibility?
What are the factors (sexual orientation, gender, religion, age, socioeconomic factors, living environment, etc.) that limit access and opportunity? What solutions do you have that can help us contribute to a more open, equal and just society?
In addition, some would challenge our role as information professionals due to the seeming ease of access provided by technology. How do we position ourselves in today's information environment? How can we be proactive?
Vigilance, citizen interest, the community, the society ... What are the tools we have as professionals? What is our contribution to our society? How can we effectively support both our organizations and our peers?
ALL RELEVANT PROPOSALS THAT MAY FALL OUTSIDE OF THESE THREE THEMES WILL EQUALLY BE CONSIDERED.
April 12th, 2015: Proposal submission deadline
Please see the Call for Proposals website for more details about the conference and submissions.
